Sorry for your loss MIke, only thing that helps is time. Good luck in the tournament.
Great report ! Congratulations on such a great trip.
All I can is buy the insurance! Lost 5 rods last year, had I known before hand I would have purchased insurance. Really didn't think an airline...
No way is that boat 50K
OMG you all need to go fishing! This is winter kind of shit.
Nice work John wish I could have made it out!
Legal all the way!

I arrive on the 4th and depart on the 9th after the WON tuna tournament.
If I was on your trip NO!

Love trips like this, 2 or 3 days really allows me to get away from work shit and really enjoy the time on the water. Fresh poke on the water...
Love it when a plan comes together. Going to take a nice mako in the near future for the same purpose. Only question I have is how did you get...
Memories for a lifetime, nice work
I totally agree. I had the place all to myself last night. Except for 1 pain in the ass seal. Getting new CO2 for my paint pellet gun for sure.
Have a great trip! Most importantly simply ENJOY the time on the water which it seems you will! looking forward to the report.
You make it look SOOOOOOO Easy! Congrats on a sweet trip.
Beats sitting behind a desk any day! Thanks for the report.
Lucky fucker got a few trophy teeth as well. Better play the lotto
Fresh is best! Bring bait but work on making more fresh bait as it will always produce more. Even going a bit out of your way to catch fresh is...
Season is just getting started so I wouldn't give up just yet, I think a solo trip works well in your kind of situation is you are comfortable...
Way too much!
Should have let him or her eat so we could really get the answer.
Keep an eye on the tides
An appraisal is one thing a "for sale" sign is another.
Nothing like team work. Nice work and thanks for the report.
Looking forward to the tuna tournament next month!!!
Right on! Great post!
Love the long trips in Feb! Enjoy:)
"I always like how splitting them never come out even. I say it goes to the boat owner.
Good call especially if you would like to go out again...
Simply... AWESOME! Sea Vee makes a great boat, have fished on one many times in Florida for swordfish and tarpon.
Congrats on the BFT.
Better check the Navy before thinking about Clemente. Lots of closure time next weekend and beginning of week.
Biggest one we had last night was about 7lbs, quality overall was excellent.
That would be a bullshit ticket if you ask me. Pretty sure DFG would understand considering the conditions Sat and Sun night.
Here is the answer
Going to be really...
Very good point!

Its all in fun. look up the Pesky which was run a few weeks ago I am sure they would like to have it back. Did you try and bait it? If so, it...
Bigger fish are at Clemente, stuff we had was 30 - 40 lb.
Had a school of bluefin on the 277 on Monday if it helps any. Reports had fish on the 14 as well.
Feel the same way
I used Nick from JB Marine about 3 weeks ago and was very pleased. They do gas and diesel which is rare as most only deal with diesel. Believe...
I think the banks might be more crowded this weekend like 50 boats all on the deep drop. I can hear the radio chatter now. KInd of like 4th of...
So FN cool thanks for the post!
I would have hung around a while to see what came up to finish its meal. Very cool no doubt. Isn't a white, mako or 7 gill that I can tell from...
I want your life!! Thanks for an incredible report.
Your phone... the access to the internet has changed longer trips and not for the better IMO.
Absolutely you can bait fish on a 9' rod, I find its a lot of fun.
ELVIS all the way!!!
Cost vs areas open to fish
Thanks for a great report. Glad you guys killed them.
Trash can will work
I would agree.
He is 100 percent wrong.
Oh man that sounds really nice!!!! REALLY nice! Might need to rethink owing my own boat. MY last month has been SHIT. FIshing has been good but...
When I can go out pretty much any day during the season and release 4 to 8 fish I hardly think they are ENDANGERED. Hardly seems fair to compare...
I WILL BE PISSED IF THEY SHUT IT DOWN!
Stocks are fine in the Pacific, which they failed to clarify.
Regardless of him being too close the Captain of the Old Glory IS 100% WRONG in the way he dealt with the situation.
International 30 or International 20
Good point ... tiny brains is more accurate.
Wow some of them private boats have big balls being so close.
Really nice looking rig.
Any chance you can post pictures of the location you plan on putting it? Pictures are worth a thousand words.
Now I understand. I would agree the cable gland seems like your best option. However, disruption from the engines is going to be an issue I...
I think a thru hull transducer and airmar fairing block is the way to go. You can have a lot of water disruption especially at any speed putting...
Ok so I am having a bad day regarding owing a boat. I am in need of an outboard mechanic for MDR does anyone have a name or number? Been trying...
Couldn't agree with you more, been a happy boat owner for 20 plus years.
WORSE no doubt about it. Sailboats really piss me off lately. I had one sail close enough to pick up both of my balloon baits, man was I pissed...
You make it look so easy! Congrats!
Crimp all day long Have seen it hold even if you forgot to crimp it but melted the end of the mono. About as close as you can get to 100% IMO.
My boats name is NoLDR meaning "no long distance release" which is based off of farming a fish ie "a long distance release". If you hooked it...
You picked the boat based on released bass? Curious how many did you release? Also how many were on the boat?
Glad everyone is safe and some great information posted about being prepared. In 20 plus years I have only put out 1 mayday call for another boat...
WOW WOW and WOW congrats on an epic day.
Pretty much guaranteed right now, I have made 16 trips for makos since May and only had two trips with nothing and those trips were in mid May. A...
Anywhere from 250 ft depth to as shallow as 50 ft. Didn't even run a chum slick yesterday and had a mako within 15 minutes of drifting for halibut.
Ok so I really like mako fishing but have some interesting observations to report for inshore fishing in the SMB. I fished Friday for mako sharks...
Had a 125 lb mako go 10ft in the air about 5 ft of my Starboard side yesterday. I really thought it was going to land in the boat, FYI I was in...
Wonder what you will do when a bigger one decides it wants the one you have tied up? Have seen it plenty of times. Or a big fur bag wants it.
Should be fine as most of the makos around right now are for the most part under 100 lbs, did have one pushing 150 lbs last week. Good luck
YES they like the squid strip as well.
One of these days. Right in the rage of where I want to go next, unfortunately can't do it until kids are out of college then its game on.
On one of my long trips Billy Santiago who was on deck made a comment " you all are dressed up like a bunch of gladiators but pull on fish like a...
I would have lost my S*** if they gave him bait.
Why wash a lucky shirt? Looks good to go IMO. Never had a fellow angler say "wow your shirt is really wrinkled". LOL.
Complete BS I have my bill due next month.
Cut the gill stick it in a bucket of ice and saltwater. let it cool down and bleed out then add to kill bag with ice.
Great looking boat, where is that boat built?
Have had similar experiences over the years each mako acts a little bit different and once you decide to take one all bets are off as to their...
Nevermind further discussion is pointless
I would review the legal means for taking a mako before recommending using a gun.
Make sure you file a float plan with a family member so they have an idea of where to start looking for your body. Thought the guys that fished...
I suggest you take this post down. Not saying the guy wasn't an asshole but bringing a calico on the dock in that manner is wrong as most will...
Someone please tell me this is a joke right? Who would allow someone they don't know to drive a 46 ' at night with little or no experience?...
Gotta love a cedar plug (please take this in the context of fishing only), congrats on the nice fish. :)
Maybe if you open the reel it has markings inside that would be helpful to determine its origin. Seems like the reel is painted over so perhaps a...
30, 40 and 80 should cover things. Positive attitude and a little bit of luck will cover the rest. Enjoy the ride, happy hunting.
WOW all you need is a vintage reel and you're set.
No No and NO! still can't believe people eat fish caught off local piers as it clearly states they dumped DDT off them in the past. Even local...
Some great fishing at Venice reef only a stones throw from the harbor. Great location to get your feet wet, catch some fish and if need be, get...
Should be fine in the morning.
Yep I agree folding grapnel.
Way over thinking it. Pull the line off the reel by hand, then add a little more is the way I do it. You have so many other factors that can't...
Shit happens? I don't think so this is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE!
Yep all good I would think.
Time away from work and the stress of life is always awesome catching fish simply kicks it up a notch.
Oh man that's a lot of great information. I agree the fishery is fantastic so happy very few people like to do it. Released a fish a few days...
Find a deep canyon and you will find sharks. Been a good season up this way so south should be full speed.

Go fishing ! Nothing another day on the water won't fix.
I say if it followed you home you get to keep it!
I agree looks like fish
What a great picture!! Congrats on the fish as well.
NIce!!! Been windy in Cabo since the 4th it seems as I was down from the 4th thru the 9th.
That does not suck! Gotta keep your options open.
Really nice rig does not look like a 2002. Good luck with the sale, price seems reasonable based on information and pictures provided.
Congrats on the new rig looks really nice.
I suggest you reach out to Danny Osuna with Marlas sportfishing.

A lot of patience.
Nice work! Love the feeling of landing a nice fish solo.
Hope you heal fast Cory!! I see big bluefin in your future.
You got lucky that rod didn't go over. Great video!
Yes you absolutely can.
Except when it comes to actual fisherman. We pay a large fine for a minor infraction, a blatant one such as this one we wouldn't have a license...
What a fucking joke!!! The guy SNAGGED and KILLED a protected species and gets probation? WTF! Probably does not even have a license which is why...
WOW!! Impressive catch. I have no experience with a cbass that big so couldn't say if it is 60 or more but anything over 50 is really impressive.
By far the coolest looking shark on our coast. Hear they are good eating but never had the heart to kill one just too cool looking. I personally...
FREEDOM!!!!! Have fun
Cobia = YUM!!!
Nice... how old is your daughter? just curious as my son wants to run solo but I am not up for it just yet.
Interested as well.
Anything longer then 10 sec interval and under 10 kts you should be fine. Shorter periods without wind might also be in play once you get...
60lb if he owns the boat you fish on. Otherwise I agree its a 50lb rod.
Have this one and another one I am refinishing.[ATTACH]
This is such bullshit! Comment sent! Don't understand why they always have to mess with regulations that are working.
Love the sport and the hunt, when you put it all together without all the interference!!! PRICELESS!
Gyros are a better bet!
No issue flying out

I pretty sure you can still donate and take a tax write off as long as it isn't more then the cost of the trip.
WOW simply WOW.
Only 1 time had to replace most of it after.
Good luck with the sale. Hardly AMAZING condition.
Cape Coral is an awesome place should have done some fishing.
Hope the weather improves as it looks like another 3 storms in a row starting Thursday.
Anything cheap so when they fall overboard or someone sits on them or other shit happens you aren't depressed about the cost for replacement....

Yep was a lot of fun. We managed 8 and lost as many do to light line and furbags. Haven't seen that many boats in the SMB in a long time.
Wrong time of year for the bigger fish IMO. Momma won't be around until May next year for the most part. Should still be some of that 150-200...
Caught them up until 2 weeks ago in the SMB. I don't think they have even left the SMB yet with all the bonito around and 65.8 deg water....

If their eyes move when you measure them let them go :)
A lot of mako sharks still around as a result, even had a blue shark about 150 lbs in 105 ft of water today.
Spot on bring them and have a ton of fun.
So jealous, have a great trip tell the gang "stickboy" said Hi:)
Safe travels and tight lines.
Survey = closures plain and simple. Yes I know GW are protected but think outside the box and you might get my point.
I have never seen one either. Going to do some research.
Moving up or getting out? Looks really clean, good luck with the sale.
If you have to ask you cannot afford it. JK 300 to 600 on average blank dependent on price.
I did hear a little something coming from up the way LOL. Only problem I had was the sailboat race Tuesday night OMG I lost it several times...
Yep they need an update for sure. I make my own for every trip I go on. Like to keep them so I can see what has changed over the years. I add...
Impressive. Really like the check never seen something like that very cool
Been great hoopin all week. Taking tonight off as well.
I have 4 or 5 old flat hoops you can have for free. I live in the San Fernando Valley so send me a PM.
No license but they do need a card
Very cool video thanks for sharing. I have to get back to NZ one of these days. Only problem is too many places to fish that I haven't been to yet.
I don't see anything in the video that supports your claim. If you felt they threatened you why didn't you call the Coast Guard? Or file claim...

I have them both and I find the Boston one easier to fly and keep flying. They both work but if you are new to this method the Boston is easier IMO.
WOW what a great video. Did you land the fish? How big was it?
WTF really 150? That is insane IMO. Best check with friends as that price is CRAZY.
I would imagine a fresh batch of fish get pushed up with the swell.
Thanks for a great post!
Cost? No WSB, BSB or other catch?

Well put David.
Drop half the light stuff and gear up for bigger fish.
You need gear for 80, 100 and 150 IMO.
You have created a MONSTER FISHERMAN. Congratulations to you both for an outstanding trip and report.
Depends on where you fish. If in SD I'd have 68, 69, 72 and of course 16. Channels will scan when not in use and stop when being used. Key is...

Cool congratulation on the new rig.
LOVE a 31' Cabo express over fly for me anyday.
Looking to move up but not sure I can justify it just yet.
How is your fuel burn on the new rig compared to the old one? I would think a little better but not much.
Another great old school BD report thanks for a very informative report.

I'm betting its really lumpy so be safe
Hope the weather gets better by Saturday or you are in for one lumpy day.
Lots and lots of makos around :)
Was really windy and lumpy yesterday inshore bet outside was an E ticket ride.
They have both but fuel is over $6 a gal.
FUCKING AWESOME!!!! I spent 14 of the last 24 hours driving in a car :(. I'm headed out tomorrow.
Yes, but that wasn't the point of the original post.
Glad you aren't a juror in this case. Inno

IMO too sharp of a hook ends up making a larger hole in the lip which the fish can shake easier, they are sharp enough out of the package.
Need... Want.... Required..... IMO going to Mexico requires every document available and then some.
How many boats are currently in?
Some really badass work.
I will be making the run. Thanks for the report and information.
How much was it a gallon ? I'm paying $5.29 a gal in MDR might need to make a run to Jankovich.
Via mail otherwise you will be standing in a very long line.
Thanks for the report it saved me from burning fuel and with MDR at $5.29 a gal it is very much appreciated.
Shows what I know about size... 144 WOW
A lot of mako sharks around right now as I fished them the last 3 days,nothing over 120 or so but a hell of a lot of fun on the light gear....
Great report thanks for the info. Was out at Catalina and the NEW Bad Company was parked out front OMG what I would do for a look at that boat...
At Catalina last week we caught them right next to the island in 15 foot of water. Use a bright light to help spot and draw them in.
time to retire to the kiddie pond and let the young guys take over. JK Learn the rail technique and you will find that even a 200 isn't that...
Now this is an old school BD report, big thank you for the detailed post.
If you kept it in the dark I would use it.
Go south if you really want YT.
Spectra to top shot of 150 to 200 IMO. Crimp on the flat fall with chafe spring and you are good to go.

I was thinking 1.6
80 wide with a 20 something sitting on it. Florida perhaps?
Shit happens if you need gear to fish before you can replace them hit me up happy to help out.
Fish will always be around ... birth of your son or daughter .... priceless,
Plan B PERFECT
Nice YELLOWTAIL no picture of a Dorado?
We do it all the time just go with people you trust and all is good IMO.
Something tells me you will find them Cory thanks for a great report.
What a great picture
Man if I was in the market to move up I would be all over this. Good luck with the sale. Really nice looking. 1 to 1 at 29 is impressive as well.
Fichts = FUCKED had a 2000 21' seaswirl with a 150 ficht and had a lot of issues. Guy I sold it to repowered it with a honda and has been very happy.
Keep a new pair just for such an incident along with peroxide, medical tape and bandage material all together sure hope I never need to use them....
NIce work, time to enjoy fresh yellowtail :)
I still like the single I even replace the sniper with a single. Maybe that's what I have been doing wrong, I will try the treble next trip. I...

I don't see it working and it will also impact the natural motion of the flat fall.
We have a few more years of this? AWESOME my kids college funds will be fully depleted if so :) WOOHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
If you put $$$$ in front of the quest you have picked the wrong hobby from my perspective.
Good luck 150 -200$ for a trip like that is awesome.
NIce report will only encourage other simple minded people to try it.

You will not be disappointed. Boat is nice and the crew works hard.
PETA? Vegan? ROTFLMAO
More for me :)
In what universe? let me guess you surf?
Happy trails shark bait!
Thanks for the honest report better luck on the next trip.
Leopard is good as well but I don't kill them way too cool looking. In reference look at Northern Cal counts for them during the season.
Completely agree with your take, I like the 80 to 150 for table fare. Anything over 7' I release.
Limit is 2 of any size per angler.
I will be fishing in Montana otherwise I would have taken them. Love Country music!!!!
Required and a good idea are different ideas. IMO if you have one bring it plain and simple.
You will spend more on a private, hope you slay'em.
I have Geico thru Boat US. I have filed a claim and I have sued them as well over engine repairs which I won. I am still with them at this point...

Great list I think I will have it laminated and posted on my boat.
NIce one for the BBQ and a male so nobody can complain. (right):) Got my first mako of the season last weekend about 100 lbs love shark fishing....
Great report and congratulations on your newest fishing partner for many years to come.
That D8 will fish 100 no problem. Good luck
Goo gone will remove it
I suggest you do anything you can to avoid surgery. I have had 3 shoulder surgeries over the years and things are still messed up. The success...
That jack pole is very cool. I wouldn't unwrap it just display it the way it is and add the feather they used with the spike on it for quick...
Really nice work.
All is good, alarm sounded and you shut down or it shut you down really isn't important. If you have an alarm after restarting then I recommend...
Florida day boat is why this engine is even in production IMO. I think I will let them sort out a few issues before I decide I need an upgrade.
WOW WOW and WOW, thanks for sharing simply amazing.
Sweet send the warm water up this way as MDR is 57 right now.
I grew up in Illinois, Colorado and last 20 plus in California so I'm fine anywhere but totally understand. Spent a year as a ski bum so I will...
Really CLOSED? come on now
Better safe than sorry IMO. I use a clamp on all gear over 50lb
I think the boat will have 2 speed reels that will be much easier on you. While I own several of each of these reels they are all blue printed...
MY BET IS NO FISH WILL BE RELEASED. In fact more will be captured just illegally.
WHAT COMPLETE BULLSHIT!! oops JMO. violate in 2016 punished in 2018 kind of late.
From now until September 7 to 10 days a month on my own boat. Might be local might be extended trips one never knows. After September I will back...
Great you killed a few of gods creatures. You actually took the time, focused in on your meal and killed it. AWESOME!!!!!!! for everyone that...
Pull the gill and let them pump out the blood, very simple
I use a saber 169 7 foot works perfectly
Going to be beautiful
Will do perhaps Captain Vince will even join us
Always a good time with Captain Vince. Kids are growing up so fast glad you had another killer day on the pond.
Send me a PM with what you have left and I am happy to take one off your hands.
Very nice work
I just missed out making the trip so I hope they run another one.
I grew up fishing and sailing on Lake Michigan while it isn't the Pacific it has very intense conditions. Upon moving to California some 25 years...
Take a Coast Guard class for sure. Do it online or in a classroom whatever works. You will not only get knowledge you will get a discount on...
great eating and GREAT bait. They live a long time you can re hook them many times without issue.
I wish I had your questions. I have a 270 qt cooler that keeps ice for 7 days which works for my small rig.
Nice work and what a great day you all had. Congratulations!! Perhaps now she is hooked for future trips.
Good to know.
Always look forward to opening day at Crowley and the tri tip by the Fire Dept is AWESOME!
The front side is facing land.
Shark is great eating but I have never had a smooth-hound. Now Mako on the other hand is excellent.
Looks like a smooth-hound shark.
I would put your 30SW's on both of those rods one with 80lb and one with 100lb. I fish my 30SW's all the time in fact I bet I fish them more than...
Send me a PM and I'd be happy to take you and the little guy out on my boat. However, my boat is in MDR.
Dartran Transport is the company I used about 15 years ago to move mine from Ohio to California.
I will not support a boat that showed a COMPLETE DISREGARD for the law.
You can also search the history as this question has recently been discussed.
I'd look at Garmin. If you want a longer explanation send me a PM.
If you see a 28' Baha Cruiser with twin 200 Suzuki's anchored next to the bait barge with a handful of kids yelling and running around...
This will be a different one... BOB SANDS in the valley hosts a great group of guys that welcomed me from day one in 1992. Knowing nothing about...
Do this all the time with my kids using trout gear and the kids always have a blast even the ones that aren't big on fishing. Safe calm water and...
From my calculations from Mission Bay to the 295 is a little over 70 miles down the beach. Approx 45 to Upper Hidden and then another 27 to the...
Word is the SD fleet is fishing down by the 295 and the Bunda Bank. Not US fish but its only April :)
I had 58.2 all day in SMB towards the pier on Saturday. Fishing was VERY slow.
Do they do headliners? I am in MDR
Because Fish and Game helps monitor the population I would guess
Work of art.;)
If you you were desperate enough to try I HIGHLY doubt anyone will be running.
Wouldn't bother unless you want reallly bad weather
Remember the trip is about HER and catching HER fish. Remember this simple rule and she will be happy. My oldest started fishing with me at 3...
If boat insurance won't cover it what about using his home insurance? A lot of people fail to look into this option as it tends to cover a lot...
Why use MOB instead of waypoint for marking spots? Just curious as they are both a one button situation for marking a location.
I am all in for option 2. Please contact me via pm so I can set up said trip. If I bring my own boat and or stand up paddle board is that okay?
:beerbang::beerbang::lux::lux: and a lot of :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:
2 hrs to cow town LOVE IT.
I am looking to do the same and all my research says Garmin. I currently have Raymarine but have had Garmin in the past.
I think this will work.
Wow what an offer I am sure you will have plenty of takers. Welcome to BD along with all its madness. I have made some lifelong friends off BD...
This kind of post is why I love BD! Glad you had a great show.
Middle line or far left rig? Or off the motor looking at a very small screen
I have twin 200's please send me the info.
Have never been but have seen it happen on big YFT in a matter of one minute.
Was out yesterday as well no fishing just a cruise with my daughter and a few of her friends from school, we found dolphins and seals but no...
Love my 270 and Jack will always have the parts for any repairs :)
Maritime communications on Washington Blvd. is my suggestion.
bluegill in the pond behind my house about 4 years old. Mom always says it was the only time I ever sat still. :)
Hope you find the boat you're looking for but all I know is you will never read or hear anyone say "oh SHIT I wish I had a smaller boat". Happy...
SIMPLY STUPID. For the Captain to allow this is so fucked up. Looked like the guy was knocked out after the second or third head blow, lucky he...
One sick fish. I sure as hell wouldn't eat it. I say send it in to find out WTF it was on.
Congrats on the sale, as its always a good day to celebrate.
Reads like a California mis-management plan.
S to SW winds 10 to 15 kt. Wind waves 2 ft or less. W swell 2 to 3 ft at 11 seconds. Rain, turning to showers.
W winds 5 to 10 kt. Wind...
20% of the base cost of the trip for fishing trips. Server gets 20% of the cost of the bill for the meal. However, if either of them are giving...
Yep I remember the days of grey popsicles = canned tuna.
RSW is simply spectacular.
That is SICK. Really nice work
Call Bob Sands and tell them of your situation If they have the parts on hand I am sure they will fix it.
So cool thanks for the report.
Seems like a pretty tough trip but they still managed 17 over 200 up to 277. Jack the owner of Accurate got 3 over 200 obviously he had a great...
Good thing you have electric reels, I see a yummy fish fry in your immediate future.
Congrats on the new to you boat :)
I would NEVER be on the water without BoatUS. Plus you can get trailer coverage for next to nothing. I have had them for 20 plus years and have...
Water is 56-58 so I'd agree with 8mm

If I had a guess it would be no zincs for an extended period as its a steel hull from way back no protection means major damage. Fished her back...
Will do thanks.
I get it. But no real swells? Come on down I guarantee I will make you rethink that statement. I will give you the other components :) it is So Cal.
My brother and sister in law moved just outside Boseman (sp) Montana about 2 months ago. Really looking forward to seeing them over the summer as...
So f***** awesome. What gear are you using? Reel, weight rod, tippet ? Trying to figure out how to try this when they show up this year. I...
So waiting for the makos to come back to So Cal counting the days!!!!
4 blades? Why?
By far the best shop around. If you get a little bit of a "hard time" ie ribbing from anyone it is all out of love!!! If you haven't had the...
More like it even my 28 with twins isn't over 10K but close dry but over fully loaded for sure.
IMO having done 12 plus long range I have never used them, I stopped bringing them a few trips ago just too FN hot IMO. Started bringing light...
A few legal fin fish should help keep them moving, but with what you mention above I think a bigger pump will be more effective.
Does it come with the GPS and all waypoints? Would ask if it catches fish but anyone on BD knows it does. Good luck with the sale.
One of these days I'm going to make that run on a private boat.
Thanks for sharing.
I have been waiting for about a month.
I think it is a Penn 6
The sushi platter on every long range boat I have been on over the last 25 years or so which is almost every boat in the fleet, have yet to fish...
I once was on a long range trip and we killed _______ in ________ and smiled all the way home :) Don't believe everything you read as...
Once you get the time down right it really is pretty easy.
I just put them in the micro and clean up after. Well worth the clean up IMO.
Really nice looking. Hope it goes to someone who takes the same pride in ownership as she looks new.
Before anyone gets crazy I am just goofing around.
For once some well used reels, never understand the NIB or never been fished. Why even buy it? Good luck with the sale.
Oh man that suck have stayed with them for over 20 years when in town. You could even get a 2 -4 hour crash pad before driving back up to LA...
Welcome to the community. I see many happy, incredible and amazing days in your future. I also see your savings being depleted but refer to the...
I'd be looking at the moon before making the trip. A Super Blue Blood moon in 2 days is A LOT of light in the water.
If you go happy hunting.
Wear it on your person and you "should be" fine for taking the videos/pictures but many exceptions can apply IMO. Do not mount it up high, down...
Nice report sounds like one hell of a trip to the bank. I HATE that ride uphill, it really sucks most of the time.
LOVE that ride....
AWESOME. Really do not understand why so many people pass on them. YUMMY.
Hi, I never or hardly post (10) but FISHING AT CATALINA IS OF THE FN HOOK LOTS OF BIG FISH AND LOCATION to be determined HOWEVER if the BD...
Why not position the boat so overhang is out back instead of over the dock? I would imagine you have a 3 foot rule of overhang for your slip out...
I just go by feel.
Wait we get points? I have been on this site from day one is that worth anything? This post must be a joke right? I never recall being forced...
You are a good man Jamie. Hope all is well. I need to get by the best shop in the valley to say hi to everyone. Will see you soon.
Call Fish and Game they should be able to locate the owner based on the new GO ID requirement. If not then what do they really do with all the...

Aren't halibut endangered? LOL Haven't seen one of that size in years.
Really nice fish congratulation.
I would imagine a few boats will be...
Landed one a few years back that actually ate a slab of tuna that I was using shark fishing. Thought for sure it was snagged but sure as shit it...
Perhaps he has a big flower garden?
I will happily go back to the days of no wifi on Long Range trips. In fact having it has ruined a part of long range fishing IMO.
How much do you want for it? That is if you are selling it.
Looks like a trout or salmon fishing set up for salmon egg, worm and power bait
No idea but that is very cool
Absolutely look into this as most have 3 years and then an additional 3 with an outside company. I have had to sue before to get what was...
On the way back is fine IMO but not on the way down as the RSW cannot hold fish that long so why kill them and freeze them?
One for the books for sure.
WOOHOO that is fucking awesome.
Keep at it we had 34 shorts one night with no legal bugs and then 3 legal and 7 short 2 days later same location
Yet another long post on BD about complete bullshit... Congrat's on the nice Bluefin and Halibut.
I seriously need to consider leaving this...
None of what you mentioned is legal.
Darwin candidate for sure!
Pull hard, fish heavy test and hope for the best, that is LUPE fishing. The lack of boats having permits is only making the chances of a 100lb...
Rick owns the boat , landing and bait operation.
WTF clear skies and this happened? This is exactly why we need a basic seamanship class as mandatory to own a boat, WITH ANNUAL RENEWAL MANDATORY.
My only location to buy bait without a 10 mile run so that is all I am saying. Yes I can make my own.
Nope a lot more then just the $$$ IMO.
I have a lot to say about this but will do what my mom said "if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all". It is all about the...
Looks like I might have some older 12s for sale soon.
You will not be disappointed I can assure you of that. Been fishing the RP for a lot of years and regardless of time between trips I have never...
You are set IMO. I have been down to Roca Partida on a 10day before they closed it obviously but even if the boat goes long you will be fine.
Call I think you will be happy you did. They have VERY good customer service.
That's what I'm talking about. Sweet pictures and my kind of trip.
Illegal to use a limit game fish for hoop net bait.
I am in LA send me a pm if you still have them.
Really nice report, enjoy the bounty of your quest.
Why not? I think they look great.
I would not donate it. IMO
A lot of mako around afterall where you find bait and bones you will find a hungry mako.
Thanks for the report saved me the run I was going to make tomorrow. Will head out for mako instead, plenty of them around to play with.
Cool. I only have one but I caught it :)
In 15 years of having a boat in the water I have never had a single item taken and in my experience neither have my friends, except one about 25...
Customer service is number one in business, which is why I only fish certain boats but that's only me, but if ALL the facts you have posted are...
U got FUCKED IMO. However I pay $4.68 a gal for gas and my boat holds 200. You gave an honest report, you admitted where you should have asked...
Gotta love when a plan comes together. Nice work.
I just drove back from NAU in Flagstaff and had a casino been within a reasonable distance I would have stopped to be on McGregor. Man I hope he...
Interesting article I am going fishing so will check for comments when I get back.
This will be a moot point and/or regulation in 6 months.
I like October
Not sure why everything has changed but I can tell you this. I ended up with a $400 discount based on no claims and the exact same policy as my...
I made the same run as you did but I started in MDR across the 270 and the like for the same result. Found a huge kelp about 4 south of the boot...
If they pass I am in.
Thanks for the MAX savings with gas at $4.84 a gal in MDR I can use every bit of it.
I am driving my daughter to NAU or I would be all over this. No fish were I am headed.

Living the dream is right so jealous.
Always nice when boats work together. Priceless when kids benefit as well.
Really like the honest report, hope number 3 is the ticket.
Sounds about right and I am not saying it isn't worth it by any means and if I sounded that way I apologize I just know PV is getting really...
Plus airfare which is approx. $500 (conservatively) plus a room the night before and after the trip looks like this is a 4k 3.5 day trip. Am I...
Wahoo....... nice boat
Nice report and great seeing that DFG is doing what we pay for.
100 - 150 I would guess.
Have never seen the need for an 80 long range fishing and while I have used them in the past fer few do now. A 50w holds something like 900 yards...
Set up sounds good.
That is one productive and long day. Congrats on an incredible catch.
I suggest borrowing a set up.
Knock of 35 percent IMO if not 40 in all honesty.
Man what makes someone think this is a good idea? I would bet alcohol but in any event just really messed up.
Pictures say a thousand words and this one is no exception. Love the Grande as I have fished it for years and the way they helped you out will...
I can think of a 1000 what if's that all end up with you not making it home to loved ones. Might want to rethink your options. IMO.
What water temp did you have ? Curious because of the T shark.
Took my son on his first 3 day two seasons ago now all I hear is when are we going on a longer trip. Love that he loves fishing helps keep him...
What the fuck is up with some people? Hope they catch them but not optimistic even if they do that much will happen.
I am amazed that you had that kind of issue with Garmin they have always been great when I have called or sent products in for service. In fact...
Call Garmin they will walk you thru everything you want to know. They are top noch in customer service, if they don't resolve your questions I...
Sick looked like a lot of fun.
Nice bonus for sure. I second the use of the money for something nice for the boss.
IMO you can't go wrong with either Garmin or Raymarine. I used a Garmin for 10 years and have had Raymarine for the last 12 years but they are...
Nice post really great to see a positive post about a sport boat seem like most only post when they have something bad to say, Seems like a great...
Now this is a BD report congratulations on one exceptional adventure.
Man I wish I lived closer as I would be all over helping out. Such a great project you have put together, can't imagine you will have any issue...
Really depends on the $$$ and size of the boat IMO.
Anything that holds line and you can reel.
Is it me? What is the point of the article? Never mind I am going fishing.:)
WOW that is an incredible accomplishment and I thought my wife doing the race to Catalina and back on a single ski was crazy, you win hands down....
A day one will never forget!! AWESOME
All the factors pointed to release so I am not surprised at all. Plus all the other guys involved got out years ago. We all know the juice did...
looks like it
What is inexpensive?
Sending prayers for him, family and friends during a difficult time.
I think that was a typo or lack of understanding of the Ridge.
Wow 5 day fishing the ridge? The closures in Mexico are really changing the trips from SD and the future for a lot of boats I bet. Sure hope...
Fish of a lifetime congrats on a HUGE accomplishment. Now go find an 11!!
The million dollar question.
Well I would have hooked it up. You should see the air show of a mako something you will never forget.
Job is done seal is dead only thing left is a nice meal.
That is spectacular footage. I would have hooked him up for sure.
I fished Roca Partida on a 10 day and we filled the boat in 2 days. A lot of travel but full speed on 120 to 180 lb YFT.
Perhaps the blood was on the deck from the yellowtail and the shark got blood on it while being unhooked, photographed and released. Plus it is...
One of the best reports I have ever seen on BD. Thanks for taking the time and posting such an in depth report with great pictures and video.
Wow Nat Geo pic for sure.
You have some HUGE BALLS. Nice catch. I was out yesterday and called it at 4 pm when it was blowing 15 and seas were 4 -6 with wind waves on top...
T's tackle in San Pedro should have everything you need.
Works with my blue and gold rods as well along with all the other blue reels I have. I see another in my future :)
Going Mako fishing on Saturday.got a nice 150lb fish last week looking for something a little big like 350lbs. will let you know if it happens.
It isn"t illegal to chum close to shore this article is false. It may not look good to beachgoers but it is not illegal per se. If they try and...

Completely agree like seeing a big mako show up in the slick before it eats, simply awesome.
Love Elvis one of these days one of these days. I have captured a few off the coast of Florida but California is a different story.
I always carry mine when in Mexican waters regardless of regulations. If something happens a passport is a lot of assistance IMO.
Nice pictures and great report. Looking to make a trip to Crowley in July.

Nice T! I see a BBQ in the near future to make up a missed Mothers Day. Nice yellows as well.
Very cool Shawn is a great guy. Hopefully he left you all his waypoints in his GPS when you bought it. Good luck with the sale can't imagine it...
What did the decking cost? Looking into something like this for my 28' Baha. Can you send me a PM with info like cost, and who you used for the job?
Did you originally buy that boat from Shawn? The name and boat is exactly what he had before his current Grady White.
Awesome those boys LOVE poker. Perhaps we will share a rail someday, are the boys going again next year or are thy looking at a different trip?...

David is a great guy and an excellent fisherman always willing to share and while it has been some time since we fished together nice seeing that...
Family that's what its all about, great pictures and post.
Been looking to catch one for a long long time. Hopefully before I'm dead.
Love the hunt.
Yes IMO sometimes it is more about getting a bite in order to lift ones interest and or spirit. Have to go in with the mindset you most likely...
Sweet thanks for the report
Great video and what a great eating fish.
I COMPLETELY disagree with you. Breed is fine has everything to do with the owner. Yes I have one, I do however understand the responsibility...
I can pick up bottom in 2500 with my Airmar for my Raymarine C120.
Can you say Darwin candidate? Amazing they lived I'd buy a lottery ticket.
LOVE IT!! nice catch and well iced for consumption. ENJOY.
You can use a game fish for bait in Washington? Can't in California.
Great report as always Cory.
Have no problem raising squid
I have blue
What a dream of a boat... good luck with the sale someone is going to be VERY happy.
What an incredible trip and write up I will be adding this trip to my bucket list for sure.
I would change your method of POSTING, good luck with your FIRM PRICE.
I wonder what the replies would be like had he posted the following:
"Taking my kids fishing tomorrow sure hope we can find some fish to pull on...
Correct if you pay 5 percent in the State you purchased it in you will pay the difference between where purchased and were registered. Everyone...
YEP but everyone should have the experience and move on.
You will always remember your first :) Congrats.
Very cool going to add this to my bucket list for sure.

NICE CATCHING :)
Another FUCKING tax so they can mismanage more money simply ridiculous. When they explain where the other funds have gone for the roads I will...
A bigger tank for a Parker 25? WOW
Nice rig, good luck with the sale would think in the next month or two it will go if the fish counts rise. Yes, I find boat sales rise with fish...
I would say not.
From Point Mugu to Santa Monica and S of Palos verdes... NW winds 10 to 15 kt becoming N 15 to 20 kt after midnight....
Solid T shark congrats.
I would tell him to take a boating class and then see how he feels after. Too far out IMO for a 17'.
NICE on the release good karma for sure
I would guess rockfish but have also heard rumors for WSB but no real confirmation of any bite.
I'm thinking you cut the arch and weld in what you need. Perhaps like a sleeve so you can raise and lower as required. I have no idea how to do...
Unbelievable where is the DFG when you need them? Every single time I have been on a public pier I have witnessed a clear violation called Cal...
Long range fishing is kind of like a good marriage (yes I am lucky in this respect) if you find a boat/woman that fits the relationship including...
All I can say is that the trip depends a lot more on the Captain, crew and passengers then the rail space.
Fishing is more about the friends you make and the time away from the daily grind in my opinion if you happen to catch a few tuna along the way...
Nice report and congratulations on the 200lb club.
Who said they ever left? If bait stayed in the area I highly doubt they ever left, don't think they leave food to find food.
If at all possible I'd get out.
Have seen a few recent shows and I looks like Michael is slowing down a little, the nature of getting older. If your looking for another show try...
This is all too funny anyone that fails to respond to the salute I would do the same again.:)

Totally agree!! Hope all is well with you my friend.
I'm headed to Steamboat in the AM for a week of skiing and boarding with the wife and kids looks like I picked the perfect time just after a...
Curious minds want to know how much for that boat spanking new? ballpark is fine.
Nice looking rig. I am guessing you are in Florida? Not sure this would work in CA.
They will figure something out they always do IMO.
Mako is one of the best eating fish in the ocean. It is right on point with swordfish IMO and not as moist as t shark on the other hand is a bit...

When in doubt kick back and enjoy the ride as you win some and lose some but in all honesty the ones lost are...
You will want 100 lb for the dropper but can get by with 80.
FYI it is 100 percent illegal to mess with another persons hoops. :)
Will pass this on with the kids tonight at lights out.
Very cool if you can PM me any details on how to set up a trip like this I'd really appreciate it. Wasn't sure from the pictures if this was a...
Cory you are the man nice report
Oh man now everyone has THE SPOT better stop posting or they will all be gone.
Looks like I need a new spot.
Happy hoopin gentlemen
Gale force conditions I think I would pass on making this trip. In fact I would be shocked if any Captain ran in the current conditions.
Better keep your fingers crossed that conditions change as it looks LUMPY for the next 24 to 48 hrs.
I lost a hoop with a float did you find it?
Some of the best spots on the island
No Laundry service. take a few extra and throw the t shirt away after the day sometimes you might use 2 shirts a day. Fishing shorts and long...
Cool pictures, I can only imagine how many flies I would have tangled up in the trees around that fishing hole.
WOW nice rig. Isn't this the same kind of boat they use for lifeguard boats? Either way WOW.
If you pay attention, follow your bait and actively fish I see no need for any color than white.
Great pictures. In 58 feet of water WOW good thing they manage the fishery so well.
Nice looking rig. I'd Adios the chairs but outside of that what a great fishing platform. Interested in what kind of boat it is as well.
Check the fish and game page
Nice job putting the wood to them.
Also noted if you paid by credit card you can get IMMEDIATE relief with one phone call to your credit card company
Well put will be interesting seeing what the response is. I once and ONLY once had to sue a corporation to get what I was legally entitled to and...
Very interesting thought I am game to listen to anyone putting together this kind of experience. Love my 28' but not sure I have the LARGE BALLS...

If you find someone please let me know as I would love to do the same, however my slip is MDR. If find someone I will let you know.
Good luck Jamie and the guys from Bob Sands sure wish I was along for the ride. I suggest you pull hard or you will suffer the wrath of the...
Nice job John welcome back.
Free but thanks for the info
Awesome I will pass this on to my daughter as she leaves Sunday for OSU to study marine biology.
Very cool had no idea the lakes had that many crawfish in it. Will remember to bring a few of my traps for the next trip.
Nice report sounds like this was your first experience fishing the RP glad you enjoyed what seemed like a scratchy trip. This is the kind of...
If you look at this years schedules for all boats you can pretty much approximate within a day or so of the same trip for the next year. The...
Slow on the troll, kick back and wait for the beautiful sound of a clicker going full speed. I would also put one down with a weight around 50...
I would walk up and down the docks closest to your slip as I would bet you that left a mark on the boat that did it.
NoLDR over and out!
Great report and I completely agree. In fact since all the boats now have internet connections a part of what I really loved about Long range...
Rabbit in a sweet plum sauce = YUMMY better than chicken any day.
Been really good thanks for asking. I switched to mako shark as they are thick in the Bay since the yellows left. :)
Poor guy never knew he was hooked bet this story would have turned out differently if you didn't stick him in the first 5 min. Nice fish
Woohoo or wahoo I am headed out to the location of the picture immediately will post when I find it. :) Do you think I need more than 100 gal of...
ditto would love to rent it to do some work on my boat.
What size were they? I have no problem catching at Pyramid but they are dinks like 2 lbs and tons of them.
The trip can be made in an 18' footer (IMO) provided the conditions work as planned and as mentioned in previous posts DON'T question calling it...
Nice Cbass obviously it was before the wind really picked up today as the afternoon in the Bay was a steady 15kts.
I'd take an Opah over a Bluefin way harder to check off the old bucket list and very yummy as well:)
That really sucks. I keep the same pen on my boat for emergencies as I had a situation a few years back that really made me understand how...
That's a great price have a great trip.
That is one GREAT eating fish. Rumor in the mill is that perhaps in the next 15 years we will have them along the California coast that would be...
That sure is the way to break in a new boat. Congrats
Better off just knowing someone with a boat. Post is well intended just don't think you will find what you are looking for in the BD community but...
I like boat us :) they have been good to me over the past 16 years hope I don't need them anytime soon.
FYI MDR gas is down to $4.11 a gal guess that means catch and release. LMAO
Nice local BFT congrats.
Check gas in MDR and get back with me or I could show you my receipt. Only take what I need don't like freezer burn . :)
The almighty have spoken again. Stop killing a legal fish after you pay $50 dollars of your hard earned money let alone all the other items...
What a great story thanks for sharing.
Going to be LUMPY so take it slow and steady.
Figured some bigger yellows had be to around with all the other life down at PV for the past month but I was thinking 20 or so not 40. Nice fish...
Imo It is not all about the taking of small yellows only in the amount of them but that is my opinion however, I wont bash the people that take...
Both rigs are amazing that 57 is a OMG:):):) boat
Oops I was thinking you wanted the connection from the 80-100 to the hook. I always use loop to loop and then crimp the hook.
Crimp it way better and 100 percent if done correctly
If it's not 200 on a scale it is NOT a cow. Still looking for mine and believe me I have PLENTY of fish in the 195 t0 198.6 range that were 200...
That is crazy what an experience and good fishing too boot.
I don't understand you have $45K into the boat and now only want 30K? Good luck with the sale.
NoLDR over and out
WOW what a great trip and report memories with the kids for a lifetime.
Get him the patch cut it in half or a quarter and he will be fine. IMO don't wait until he's sick start him on it a day before the trip and...
Great report and congrats on a great day on the water.
Have a great trip and let us know what happens.
This happens year after year let the people keep what is legal if you don't like it don't participate in keeping them. You have to understand...
Newport is the same
Great news LOVE the Lupe. Get your camera ready as some of the best tax man memories I have are from the Lupe.
Yep can absolutely understand where you are coming from.
The yellows are 3 to 5 lbs so let them grow to become home guard yellows we all love so much.
Leopard Grouper, can't see the full tail but I don't believe it's a broomtail
Been doing it for the past 5 or 6 years getting to be more and more of a pain in the ass but I do it because any money I can get back so they...
That's insane simply awesome
Right fish wrong gear this seems to be a pattern around here :) Friends don't let friends fish 60lb let alone 40lb during a full foamer name of...
WAHOO LOVE the RP top of the top IMO. Looking forward to September trip only a 3 day but anytime on the RP is AWESOME
GREAT job it's people like you that restore my faith in humanity. When are people and our government going to realize the ocean isn't something...
WSB great for the grill, when they reach the legal size :)
My boat was purchased in Mayo, Florida so no worries if they fit maybe we can figure something out.
If I didn't have 200's I'd be all over this. Do you know if they are the same size?
I'd call your boat insurance company as well as your homeowners insurance company as it never hurts to ask if they will cover you. Hope it works out.
Any boat you can get on JK. Of course do a little research which you are my only recommendation is don't think that a good deal is a good deal...
not today my little friend or tomorrow
Don't think its going to be a stellar summer but should be plenty of fish to pull on. The bigger question is what happens after this year.
Plan on making bait I'd try shallow around the east end usually good for greenbacks macks and Spanish which are a fantastic baits I'd rather have...
GREAT POST and priceless observations!!
Really? What information do you have to substantiate this comment? Just wondering if you work on a boat or where you came up with this is all....
If you PM me I will give you my opinion. Have had a boat with twin 200 Suzuki engines since 2006.
Bummer you had a tough trip but you will get more out of this site if you post all your positive trips instead of one tough trip. Yellow have...
Great post sometimes even the best of Captain's get big fish crazy as seeing 200 lb fish breaking makes every fisherman, even salty fisherman, a...
100lb and possibly 80lb if line shy anything less is a waste of time. Sure you might hook one but highly doubt you will land it. Considering BFT...
